Video has been released by police that shows a driver in Florida crying and apologizing after police caught up with her after she reportedly hit a family with her vehicle and left the scene.
Cassandra Grammel allegedly ran a red light at an intersection in Delray Beach, Fla., in early October and knocked over Daniel and Kelley Heneghan, their 4-year-old daughter and 1-year-old son, according to Mail Online. Grammel drove away from the scene moments later.
“I'm sorry!” the 24-year-old Grammel says repeatedly on the video as officers ask her how much she had been drinking before handcuffing her and leading her away.
The Sun Sentinel reports that police say Grammel’s blood alcohol level was nearly three times the legal limit at the time of the incident.
Breath tests put her blood alcohol content at .263 and .265, according to a police report. The legal limit in Florida is .08. Grammel is charged with DUI causing serious injury and hit and run. She reportedly was in jail for nearly a month and-a-half before being released on $10,000 bail.
The children luckily weren’t hurt, but their father suffered a serious leg injury and needed surgery. The mother suffered a concussion.
Grammel reportedly crashed into traffic signs less than a mile away from the hit and run, and officers found her in the car with the engine running and windshield smashed.
